Penrose Room does not offer low-calorie selections per se, although executive chef Bertrand Bouquin’s characteristically delicate touch ensures that dieters won’t have too much trouble navigating the seasonal menu; sensible portion sizes help. Ahi tuna three ways, for instance, includes small samples of vitello tonnato, tartare with Meyer lemon and seared filet with wasabi cream; an entrée of Hawaiian red snapper and baby vegetable ragout over toasted couscous in parsleyed chicken jus also exudes a healthier option. For dessert, there’s a seasonal assortment of low-cal sorbets. Of course, the kitchen at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is also happy to oblige special dietary needs, so don’t hesitate to make special requests.
